    Reason First: Why did Dentist Dr. Arthur Warren Waite Commit Murder?

    In his selection for his last meal before being electrocuted in Sing Sing, did Dr. Arthur Warren Waite request some typhoid, pneumonia and diphtheria? Did he ask for an arsenic soufflé for dessert? While there are no records of whether Waite asked for such arrangements, it is clear that he used such substances to dispatch his mother-in-law and father-in-law. As a prosperous dentist before his murderous ways, Dr. Waite had become familiar with various bacteria and chemicals.

    Reason First: Chester Gillette and the Murder in the Adirondacks

    Reason First: Chester Gillette and the Murder in the Adirondacks

    On Big Moose Lake, in 1906, the water rocked the boat in a steady motion. Two young people who had become smitten with each other but had their own demons enjoyed each other’s company. Chester Gillette looked at the comely Grace Brown and smiled. It appears as if the two had fallen in the most profound and sincere kind of love. He carried with him a tennis racket. He withdrew the tennis racket and whacked her in the face in the head with it like an axeman chopping at a tree. Grace lost consciousness and fell overboard. Under the assumed name Carl Graham, Gillette journeyed back to the shore with supreme confidence.

    Reason First: The Killer Sausage Maker

    To claim one’s innocence after specific and indisputable evidence had surfaced took gall. For convicted murderer Adolph Louis Luetgert, he died in jail maintaining his guiltlessness. The “Mr. Lover,” who charmed concubines while still married and without his second wife’s approval, worked as the head of a sausage making factory.

    Reason First: Doctor Death’s Unreason

    The Hippocratic Oath clearly states that a doctor must abide by the idea that he or she “will abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm.” J. Milton Bowers must have overlooked this section. The so-called “ladies’ man” murdered three of his four wives. After serving only four years in prison for his crimes, Dr. Bowers returned to his practice as if nothing ever happened.
